Forrest Marlborough Malbec (2021)

The impressive 2021 (4.5*) is the first vintage of this label for 11 years. Picked from 35 year-old, estate-grown vines, it is a deeply coloured, full-bodied, vibrantly fruity red, with rich plum, berry and spice flavours, savoury notes adding complexity, and supple tannins. Showing good density and harmony, it’s well worth cellaring.
